The ninety-four images in Fritz Kaeser: A Life in Photography illustrate the fifty-year career of photographer Fritz Kaeser. After World War II, Kaeser studied briefly with Ansel Adams, whose influence is evident in Kaeser's remarkable photographs of the American Southwest and the Rocky Mountains. Kaeser's photographs of the 1940s through the 1960s are wonderfully diverse, ranging from clear, brilliant landscape views of the mountains and high deserts to close-up studies of rocks and plant forms. The volume includes a series of portraits of Georgia O'Keeffe, several of which are published here for the first time. Late in his career, Kaeser produced totally abstract images and studio shots of bones and skulls, inspired by his readings in religion that included the poems of the Catholic monk, Thomas Merton. Kaeser used photography as a way of searching for the elusive patterns that underlie reality -- what Merton called "a hidden wholeness".
